Default Recommendations on a sling

My AR is missing something. A sling. Does anyone know where I could find a good one? Under $30 if possible.

You might try Spectre.

I use 3 point slings on two of my ARs. you can let the weapon down and carry it under your arm, almost like a pistol in a shoulder holster Both hands are free, but if you need the weapon, it's up as fast as drawing a pistol.

I would pay the extra for a Magpul MS3 sling. It can be used as a single point or two point. The clips are steel with a toggle lock to make sure it doesn't come off the rifle. Well worth it.

The Magpul MS3 is a little higher than I want to pay. I do like the MS2 since I can get it in the same color as my guns furniture. I also liked the Spectre.

I know absolutely nothing about tactical slings. I only know about the classic slings that you use on bolt actions. What are the difference/advantages in a one, two, and three point stock?

My guns also lacks a sling adapter directly behind the receiver. The stock (Magpul CTR) has a place for a sling though. What types will work with my current setup?

Basically what's I'd like to do is either have the gun hang down in front, or hang under my arm for easy access. I don't need anything too fancy.

Thanks.

Ok, I wouldn't be able to use that kind without buying a sling adapter to go just behind the receiver.

not that I know of ... came across him on the 458socomforum. I bought one a few years ago for the STAG AR15 and really liked it. I got Jpyle the same one for Christmas last year. I'll be getting a 2-3 more later this year ... they are super rugged and durable, plus the paracord can be utilized in a pinch
